Christmas Charity Concert messages

U. S. Steel Košice provides continuous, long-term support to those who are dependent on assistance from others. The culmination of the Company's year-round charitable activity is the now-traditional Christmas Charity Concert.

Support for foster homes

U. S. Steel Košice has been supporting foster homes in eastern Slovakia for 18 years.

Before Christmas the foster home children fill in cards with their gift wishes, which Company employees then fulfill at Christmas time. The “Wishing Trees” have taken firm root in the steelmakers' hearts, and many of them take it for granted that they bring pleasure at Christmas not only to their own children, but to some foster home children as well.
Assisting young people who have had to leave the safe place of their foster home is the mission of the Halfway Houses.
In the video sequence you will see the typical life of the boys in the Halfway House in Košice, and you will get to know two young people who have moved on from the Halfway House thanks to the employment they have gained at U. S. Steel Košice.

Support for the families of employees who find themselves in a difficult life situation

Ten families, that means ten different stories, and ten trying ordeals. Some have had to deal with the death of a family member, while others have fought with terminal disease in one of the parents, or are left taking care of a seriously ill child.
Taking people's minds off their difficult situation and providing space for pleasant experiences instead is the mission of the project called “We Are With You At The Right Time”, which U. S. Steel Košice has been carrying out for the past seven years. In addition, at the end of the year each family receives financial support in the form of a lump sum worth 2000 euros.
In another video sequence you will meet the family of Mrs Mária Reisová, and her talented daughter Martinka will also be singing during the Concert. We will take a look as well at the pre-Christmas meeting with new families being brought into the “We Are With You At The Right Time” project in 2019.

Support for the Friends of Hearing-disabled Children Civic Association

The next video sequence presents the Friends of Hearing-disabled Children Civic Association, based in Prešov.
A representative of this civic association will be on stage during the Concert to receive a symbolic check for the sum of the proceeds from ticket sales to this event.

Announcement of the results
of the  employees' fund-raising

This year the employees of U. S. Steel Košice are supporting the ORL Department of the University Children's Hospital in Košice.
The symbolic check representing the final sum raised in the traditional end-of-year voluntary collection will be presented during the concert to the management of the ORL Department.
The sum raised by the employees will be matched euro for euro by the company U. S. Steel Košice.
The resulting funds are intended to facilitate the setting up of a children's audio-center.

U. S. Steel Košice has organized fundraising for selected health-care institutions 15 times to date, with the employees, the Company and the U. S. Steel Košice Foundation supporting these institutions with a total sum of almost 1 421 000 €.

The symbolic check will be presented by one of the USSK employees who has contributed to the fundraising.
